Finding the perfect location in Kona is not so easy. You want to have great ocean views in a quiet neighborhood away from the highway, while still being minutes away from the beach, restaurants and shopping. The Registration ID# for this property is: GE-162-723-4304-02
Less than 10 minutes away is Kahalu’u beach. Kahalu’u is widely regarded as one of the top snorkeling spots in all of Hawaii. The variety and quantity of tropical fish at Kahalu’u is fantastic. For those first getting used to snorkeling, the private pool is a safe and easy way to get used to wearing a mask and snorkel. The location is also close to many other beautiful beaches, restaurants and shops. Choose among a wide variety of ocean and outdoor activities or simply just relax on the patio enjoying an intense ocean sunset.
Thank you for a very relaxing 2 weeks. The place has been just what we needed. We're really going to miss the swimming pool & Beautiful view. Hope to see you again.
We stayed 3 nights in this comfortable and convenient home. The rental is in the lower level of the owner's home, in a quiet and what seemed to be a very safe neighborhood. The rental was clean and well appointed. We were pleased with amenities including a small but functional kitchen, generous bathroom, comfortable family room and bedroom, washer/dryer, and several ceiling fans to keep things dry. We were not thrilled with the electric grill; had we been staying longer, we would have been disappointed. Excellent beach gear was appreciated!
Paul and Amy made the rental process very simple. We valued the privacy we were given, but the only thing we would change, would be to have the opportunity to meet the owners. Given that we were actually staying in someone's house, while they are home, we both felt as if we would have been more comfortable if we had met the owners at check in.
The price for this spotless, comfortable home is very reasonable. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this rental to family and friends.
Yes, the view is truly BEAUTIFUL.
It's late October and it's only been 4 months since my husband & I spent a week in June 2016 at this rental, for the fourth year in a row - and we cannot wait for our return #5 in 2017 (already booked!) I don't exaggerate when I say that this special place - from the first visit, and continuing - feels like your own when you stay there. Paul and Amy are both amazing, conscientious, and interesting people who truly "get" how important it is for mainlanders to have a special place to get their "Hawaii on." And they work hard to create that for every guest. From the ease of the renting process, they do all they can to avoid creating stress while planning for your vacation; to the comforts of the rental itself - it's the perfect spot for two.
One of the exquisite amenities of staying here is not only the stunning view (pics are accurate), but the quietness filled with birdsong. There is nothing like getting up at dawn to catch the moonset as pink & mauve colors paint the sky and ocean while the birds are beginning to sing, as your coffee perks a new pot and you just stand outside pinching yourself. The elevation of the rental is in a sweet spot, in our opinion. Granted weather is weather, and things can change on the Hualalai Mountain from hour to hour - and we have experienced everything from torrential downpours (exciting) to sunny hot days that would bake any frigid snowbird's bones. Yet, that's Hawaii!
Our first two years we took off nearly every day to get to our adventures - the rental's location being perfect. And then we couldn't wait to get back and have drinks and pupus at sunset. You will take about 800 sunset pictures. You will. Then, the last couple of years we just missed this rental too much while we were out and just craved the quiet days of lounging by the pool ALL DAY. What a way to recharge in your own way! Paul and Amy let you feel as if it is YOUR pool, as for the first three years of staying we never saw them - but were always available on the phone if we needed anything.
We've since recommended this rental to friends (two couples) & they also loved this spot. The bed is super comfortable, the wifi reliable, the bathroom roomy, generous, and stylish, and the kitchen compact yet fully efficient. I love the barstool table to maximize the view, too. So I could go on and on, just because thinking about it takes me there. But we still have to wait 8 months to really be back. But maybe you don't!
We spent three weeks here in mid-August through Labor Day. This place was truly outstanding! We have been coming to Hawaii for many years, and this by far was our favorite trip. The property is very well-maintained with wonderful amenities. It is located in an exclusive neighborhood—very quiet, safe, and secluded. The views from the lanai were awesome! We used the pool almost daily, and it was so nice having our own private drive. Amy and Paul are delightful people who truly care about their guests, and it shows in their attention to detail. They were very easy to work with and quick to respond to any e-mails. Last, but not least, we found Paul’s book on The Big Island (Hawaii’s Essential Adventure Guide 2016) to be invaluable. We used it almost daily. Thank you Amy, Paul, and Cola for making our stay so very special! The Craters, Raleigh, NC
This is a beautiful property, as the photographs on the listing accurately reflect. It has a commanding view and is located in a quiet, upscale neighborhood. The unit itself is compact, and has everything you need, perhaps with the exception of a dishwasher. It was immaculately clean.
Sadly, we found the two amenities most important to us to be lacking. The swimming pool, the most important reason we chose this property over others, was so cold, despite the advertised solar heating, that we could not use it. On the first full day we were there, we asked if the heat could be turned up, and were told they would see if they could turn it up a few degrees. This either never happened or was unsuccessful, because the pool remained very cold.
Second, when we arrived, we learned that the owners have replaced the gas barbecue with a table top electric unit, reportedly because they were having problems with bugs and geckos getting into the barbecue. This very small unit, which requires you to put water in a drip pan, is a very poor excuse for a barbecue, something that was important to us. We used it twice, each time with poor results, once with fish and once with beef. The water in the drip pan ends up giving things cooked on the unit a sort of a poached result, which does not work well, especially with meat.
The owners note in their listing that they provide an air conditioner for July, August, and September, so we were not surprised that nothing was made available while we were there. However, we were there in early October, and several days were quite hot and humid. They might want to rethink having AC available only during the months they have chosen.
We booked this unit for nine days, but left after six and went elsewhere. We were unhappy enough to lose, unfortunately, the cost of three days we had paid for. Leaving early in this manner is something we have never done before, and we have travelled extensively. In this case, it was worth it.
We had a wonderful stay at here and the views are truly incredible! It was convenient with our own parking spot, and we loved the personalized signs they had upon our arrival. The living area was comfortable and the food they left in the fridge for breakfast made it very covenient. Overall they were very helpful and we have nothing negative to say.
This property is exceptionally well-maintained with wonderful amenities. The beach gear was a great plus and the air conditioning in the bedroom was perfect to help us nod off to sleep. It is wonderfully secluded but with quick access to a main highway. The view is brilliant and the sunsets stunning. Five isn't enough stars.
Soak in the views while being minutes away from some of the best snorkeling, surfing and bogie boarding beaches in Hawaii.
